    I'd let your membership end. Chances are they will do this deal again to suck you back in eventually.

    Very tempted to do this but:

    a) I can only order from Amazon at the moment, and that's not exactly cheap XBOX Gold

    b) I'm still concerned, due to the T&C wording, that once you've gone Ultimate you might not be able to go back to standard again. The wording is unclear, and it probably means until your subscription ends, but it doesn't state that and HP do something similar where they won't let you go back to a freebie once you've gone for a higher plan. It's slightly different, but it wouldn't surprise me, and I don't want to get stuck paying 12 a month further down the line.

    However, also sure that they'll bin off Gamepass and Gold only options soon, and on XBOX at least, only Ultimate will be available come 'next gen'.

    @kentmonkey Amazon might not be cheap but prices have been creeping up everywhere since the increase from MS. The sudden rush on Gold following the Ultimate conversion probably hasn't helped either. CDKeys are currently charging 42 vs Amazons 50, so it's only a difference of 75p per month. As for going back to standard gold, I can't imagine that you wouldn't be able to not just have gold once your ultimate subscription ends, I think (hope) they're just saying that you can't revert while the subscription is active. As for being stuck paying whatever the Ultimate sub costs in a couple of years, I've no doubt that there will be sub cards available at a discounted price from the usual places.

    Yeah my thinking is that'll be a problem for 2022 me. In the meantime, I don't need to worry about live or gamepass for the next few years,

    Phoenix Point from X-Com creator Julian Gollop is coming to Game Pass in September apparently.

    If I do the home Xbox sharing thing with a mate, and he lets his Gold & Gamepass lapse, will he still be able to access those services through my Ultimate sub?

    Yeah it's not a long game. Well worth the playthrough though.

    Does anyone know if my save game will from the xbox will be used for Ori and the blind forest on my PC?

    I'm not sure it's a "play anywhere" game but I'm wondering if the ultimate game pass adds this functionality?

    Supermarket Shriek is overall much more fun than I was expecting, even if those screams tend to haunt you for a while after you stop playing.

    It might just be my sleeper surprise of 2019.

    It looks like three more games are heading to Xbox Game Pass for Console, presumably in July. We've just picked up three games that haven't been mentioned before in among the Xbox Game Pass list announced last week. There's no date attached, but it's the right time of the month to be announcing Game Pass titles for the following month, especially as we just found out about the Xbox Game Pass games leaving soon.

    Here's what popped up on our radar:
    Torment: Tides of Numenera
    Die for Valhalla!
    Dying Light

    Not my cup of tea, but I already have a lot on my plate anyway.

    Finally cracking on with LiS2.

    Bought the first ep, but the second will be thanks to game pass.

    I am so impressed with the pc game pass that I'm hovering over purchasing a new Xbox and getting the ultimate deal. They've genuinely reignited excitement in the brand.

    Get an X, do the Ultimate trick (free Gamepass with basic gold sub basically), enjoy. The Gamepass library on Xbox is pretty impressive, you won't really need to "buy" any software for it.

    Think I might just pick up one of those digital ones instead since the new console is only a year or so away.

    I'm in the same boat. Been looking at a One S. I think I'm going to wait and see if Amazon have any deals on them in this years prime day before biting though. I think its only a month or so off and theres plenty on the PC pass for now.

    It's actually put me off. I've been playing a few games with PC/Xbox cross play and a lot Sea of Thieves with Xbox players and the general community is utterly fucking unbearable.

    Really tempted to buy an xbox just to get the pass. Such a good selection of games coming up.

    I combined to get the ultimate pass - I do like game pass as it allows me to try games I wouldn't normally look at. It does mean that I download and uninstall a lot though :-)

    I got another 3 months of GP Ultimate for 17 euro, thanks to an Amazon deal. Not as good a deal as the whole gold conversion thing, but I'm afraid I missed on that one. And I only needed this much time to play Gears 5 and perhaps Outer Worlds, anyway.

    You think the Xbox community is more unbearable than any other large platform? I mean I imagine that there are a lot of toxic people on Xbox live but I doubt it's any worse than anywhere else.

    I did that and the code only added on 1 month. Going to have to go through the pain of speaking to customer service, Amazon already apologised and sent me a new code, except the new code is complete bollocks.

    Yeah absolutely based on experience of PC, PS4 and Nintendo. I started playing Sea of Thieves not realising it was crossplay and it was like a slap to the face, unlike anything I've played in 3 decades. Sea of Cunts, great game but I had to mute everyone.
